Talia Mason is a dancer and choreographer interested in the intersections of kinesthetic and verbal language. Talia holds a BA in Dance and Francophone Studies and Education from Bates College and a post-baccalaureate in performance from Headlong Performance Institute. She grew up dancing at the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and at the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company. Talia choreographs because she believes wholeheartedly that ordinary bodies can do extraordinary things and that anyone can dance and that everyone should dance. Talia’s work has been presented at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Movement Research’s Open Performance, Fringearts’s Scratch Night, and Bartram’s Garden. She has performed in work choreographed by Belle Alvarez, Nicole Bindler, Rachel Boggia, Dance Exchange, Sean DorseyLily Kind, Shreshth Khilani/Sarah Marks Mininsohn, Cassie Meador, Tiffany Rhynard, and Mira Treatman. Her latest work with collaborator Christina Catanese, Field Notes on Remembering, premiered at Bartram’s Garden with the oldest ginkgo tree in North America. Talia spent three years teaching Movement at Greene Towne Montessori School in Philadelphia and adjuncting and facilitating community-oriented engagements for Dance Exchange, and doing freelance graphic design for Headlong and Philly-based artists. In the fall, Talia will begin an MFA in Experimental Choreography at UC-Riverside.
